The IYWI has moved online! We will be offering a remote experience aligned with the five-week summer session, June 29 - July 31.
Students will experience a mixture of asynchronous and synchronous work led by IC Writing faculty and student TAs/Interns. Core workshops, literary magazine, and craft classes will all be offered as noted. Specific schedule to come; there will be no heavy Zoom requirements (Zoom session to last no longer than one hour each and take place no more than two or three times per week, in static schedule).
The cost for pre-college students will be $300 total; applications will still be processed via CampMinder.
The Ithaca Young Writers Institute, a noncredit summer program for high school students, offers two weeks of intensive writing workshops on the campus of Ithaca College in the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York.
Unlike most other young writers conferences or precollege summer writing camps, which focus primarily on creative writing, the Ithaca Young Writers Institute hosts a wide range of both creative and professional writing courses, from poetry to publishing, building on Ithaca College’s reputation for blending praxis with the arts. Taught by the distinguished faculty of the College’s Department of Writing, with assistance from the department’s most talented undergraduates, the curriculum mirrors the department’s own unique curriculum, giving aspiring young writers an immersive conference experience in an authentic college atmosphere.
